This Is the thirteenth consecutive
freshman week program since O. S.
C. pioneered in this plan of starting
new students out with an intelli
gently planned boost rather than a
haphazard catch-as-catch-can idea.
As usual, this will not be a "rush
ing" week for fraternities and sor
orities, but will be devoted exclu
sively to a definite program of
guidance lectures and conferences,
and placement tests to see that stu
dents enter the classes that will do
them the most good.
For students who are still In doubt
as to the field of work in which they
should register, there will be three
special confereno hours at which
competent advisers will answer
questions and give other vocational
assistance. In addition, each en
tering student Is assigned to a fac
ulty adviser for the entire veek,
whose duty it is to render all assist
ance possible in this and other mat
ters. A total of 11,938 persons were en
rolled in vocational education
